New Members Please Read Forum Guidelines

I think that we could use a few guidelines for Posting on the forum. I have had to edit a few post lately :neutral: and I really hate doing that as I don't want anyone to think they are doing wrong but somethings just really can not be done.

1) For your own safety---This is a public forum and as such when you post in a thread it can be seen by anyone all over the world. Unfortunately we live in a time where not everyone out there is a nice person so PLEASE do not post your personal e-mail addresses in a thread. You can get a PM or in your profile set up you can have a link to your personal e-mail. This then means that you have to be a member of the forum to access this information. It is a small step and of course not fool proof but it is a step to protect your identity.

2) Please read the copyright rules thread that we have posted in the Wanted Section. This is important information and will save you from making an innocent mistake. Copyright is a very murky business and we don't have all of the answers but this post should answer your basic questions. Please when asking for charts do not use words as copy or share or scan as these post will put not only you in a difficult position but also this board. Please be respectful of the designers rights.

3) Please do not post a picture of a chart in your threads. This is a copyright issue and could put the board in a difficult postion as some could see it as promoting copyright infringements.

4) For new members----if you have a question or a specific request please post it in a thread in the Section that it most fits. Do this once and give us all a day or two to respond. We are always excited to help anyone with any problem. We will do all we can to help you with your quest. Do not post in every section 6 or 7 times. This just tend to annoy the members and will not get you an answer any faster.

If there are other concerns or suggestion please feel free to add tehm or if you want me to add them let me know and I will include them on this post.

Users are allowed, within reason, to let our membership know about their own sites and design efforts. As such, the following information is available for such users.

Users may post a link for their own site in their signature. Please keep this tasteful and within reasonable limits.

Any other posting of self advertising will result in the thread being removed. Frequent violations may result in offenders being warned and the violator being banned from the site.

If you have a website selling items and would like to offer these items for sale, or if you have unused kits, materials or original patterns then these can be sold in the Trade/Sell sub forum. In order to offer items for sale you will need to become a forum supporter and help to support the running costs of the forum. Full details of how to become a supporter are here.

Items must NOT be advertised or offered for sale outside the Trade/Sell forum.

Rose~

When you say we cannot post pictures of our charts, does this mean that we can't post a picture of what the stitch is supposed to look like when completed? (The one that comes with the chart or kit)

Thanks!

No I mean that you can not post a picture of the actual chart that you work the pattern off of. The finished picture is fine as long as you are very careful with certain charts that may easily be copied.

Let me see if I can explain the boxes as maemae you might be a bit confused about the way a new post is marked.

In the first column there will be a box with a design in it.

1)If the design looks like a basket with needles that means it is a standard post,

2)If the box has an explanation mark in it that means it is a Sticky post and that means it will stay at the beginning of the Section so the information is not lost.

3)If it is a box with a small i in it that means it is an Important Annoucement and will show at the top of ALL Sections.

4)If in the box you see the design and also a button then that means that at some time you posted a response to that thread.

5)If you see the box and also see a little Chili Pepper that means it is a HOT topic, which means there have been many post to this thread.

Next you will see the column with the Heading of the thread, directly in front of the Heading Name if you see a small red box with an arrow in the bottom right corner that means that this thread has a new posting in it. Once you have read that thread.....as long as you go to the last page with posts on it the red box will go away but the first column will still have the other symbols left in it. They will just change colors. I hope this helps.

There have been members that over the years have asked about the Pattern that is in the Forum Header so I thought it would be a good idea to post the information here so it would be easy access.

It is a Permin Kit by the name of Violet Posy

To change the Title of your post:

Click on the original post, you will see buttons at the bottom of the post on the right hand side. Click on the EDIT button. Then when the screen comes up in the Subject line change the title to whatever you want it to say.

But the answer to the Spambot busting question (what color is the flower in the logo) was not violet. :? That was my first attempt at the answer.

I have read the guidelines and agree wholeheartedly. I do have a question though and hope this is the right place to ask it. How do I get access to the Cross Stitch Forum Facebook page? I keep getting bumped back to the website and am now confused. Thank you.
